As we approach the date of 8/8, a day that is known as The Lions Gate, it is an excellent time to take a look a look at what events have occurred over the last year that have been significant and at what wounds have been triggered that we are still carrying. The Lions Gate is a time of alignment of the Earth, the star Sirius, and the galactic center. As Sirius rises in the sky, Orion’s Belt directly aligns with the Pyramid of Giza. The alignment is called Lions Gate because it occurs when the Sun is in the astrological sign of Leo.
Sirius is known as our “Spiritual Sun”. We are constantly bathed in the cosmic rays generated by the Sirius system which includes Sirius A the large star and its binary twin the dwarf star known as Sirius B. The ancient Egyptians New Year was at the time of Sirius’s helical rise, or first appearance on the Eastern horizon just before sunrise. This was also the time of year when the Nile River would flood bringing life and fertility to the fields. It is interesting to note that the ancient Egyptians somehow knew of the existence of the dwarf star despite the fact that it is not visible to the naked eye.
Around July 6, Sirius is conjunct our Sun starting a phase of its closest proximity to our solar system and there is upswing in the cosmic rays which infuse us photon light energy, light codes and divine wisdom. These cosmic rays, all the information and activations are automatically received by all life and all of the planet herself. It is up to each individual to access and integrate the information. The challenge is in the translating the information from light language to our own human language to be fully understood and integrated. This often happens in dream work, flashes of insight or understanding and the AH HA moments. If we pay attention to where we are triggered or what comes up for us in these months we can amplify our learning. We can also further integrate these energies through meditation, day dreams, being in nature and silent contemplation.
This year we are coming off a full solar eclipse on July 2 and partial lunar eclipse on July 16 as well as there being 5 planets in retrograde which amplifies the energy of releasing the past. Take advantage of this time by be aware of thoughts of the past that might be coming up, patterns that are recurring themes in your life, old wounds that may play on continuous loop in your mind, set the intention to release the negative aspects and let these wounds be healed by divine self-love and acceptance.
With Lions Gate occurring in the time of Leo, which is the sign most associated with individual expression of the divine self and the heart center, this is a potent time for personal growth. Development happens through release of old patterns, integration of divine wisdom from the higher self and multidimensional realms brought in to our consciousness. The key is to be aware, be self-loving and be willing to make different choices than the ones made in the past while finding ways to love our more self-sabotaging mind loops and programs to wholeness. The Lions Gate energy gives us an opportunity to grow and an accelerated pace, particularly on 8/8, 8/17 and 8/26 – all of which have the infinite energy of 8 doubled.
Be aware and mindful during the next month use the cosmic energy and wisdom to its, and YOUR, highest potential!
